Cream Cheese Plain

Whatever day it is that you are reading this sentence is a pretty great day because it includes this exact moment right here when you found out that a seriously delicious plant-based cream cheese finally exists. If bagels could talk, they’d probably say “hooray!”, but then again, maybe they’d be like “whoa, I can talk!” Actually, since we don’t make bagels, maybe we’ll stick to imagining what amazing oats would say, which is a whole other webpage altogether.

Oatly Cream Cheese Plain 8oz

What's Amazing

It’s for sure amazing that our Philadelphia-based innovation team has created a cream cheese from oats that tastes as close to dairy cream cheese as our lawyers will allow you to imagine, but let’s keep things focused on describing this product so that you might want to try it. Rich and creamy! Super obvious adjectives, but also totally accurate. This product provides all the savory, tangy goodness of cream cheese without all the “messing with large farm animals without their written consent” part of cream cheese. You can spread it on a hot bagel, or a hot piece of toast, or a hot whatever, and it’ll keep its creamy texture without becoming a drippy mess. Use it in your cooking to add a little creamy “je ne sais quoi,” which is French for “a delightful oat-based cream cheese kick.” No really, look it up, pretty sure that’s what it means.

What might be less amazing

In order to achieve a perfectly creamy texture that can hold up to hot foods while also being spreadable right out of the fridge, we have added RSPO-certified Identity Preserved palm oil to our cream cheeses. We take the sourcing of our palm oil very seriously, so the following paragraphs about our RSPO-certified palm oil are 100% joke-free:

With roughly one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions coming from the food system, and about half of those emissions coming from livestock or the animal-based sector, the greatest impact we can have as a company is to convert dairy users into Oatly consumers. And to help make that swap easier for people, we are committed to creating the best-tasting and performing oat-based products we possibly can. Which brings us to why our innovation team decided to use palm oil in this cream cheese: They knew they needed a fat that would help make this product creamy, smooth and spreadable (in a dairy cream cheese, this is where animal fat usually comes in). And palm oil delivers. It helps this product taste, perform and behave the way you’d expect a great dairy cream cheese to taste, perform and behave — and it does it better than any other oil we tested.

We are aware of the negative impacts palm oil has historically had on the environments and communities where it’s cultivated. Which is why we are only sourcing RSPO-certified Identity Preserved palm oil. RSPO stands for The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, which is a global, multi-stakeholder initiative on certified sustainable palm oil products. Its principal objective is to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil through cooperation within the supply chain and open dialogue between its stakeholders. Certifications such as RSPO are designed to promote sustainable palm oil production and incorporate stringent environmental and social criteria. RSPO-IP products can be traced back to RSPO certified mills and plantations, and the entire supply chain is monitored by independent, RSPO-accredited auditors.

And now, for the remainder of this website please expect tons of less serious copy and too many attempts at jokes.

Born in our not-so-secret Philadelphia R&D lab. You might even call it a Philadelphia cream cheese, but you also might not. No dairy, no soy, no nuts, no gluten, non-GMO and kosher.

More about this product

  • Where can I find grocery stores near me that carry Oatly?

    We made the Oatfinder so that you can be directed with GPS accuracy to the nearest forward-thinking grocery stores, restaurants and cafes that carry Oatly products. While the Oatfinder is really popular and talented, it can’t tell you whether a location has Oatly products in stock at this very moment, so we recommend calling ahead to make sure there will be cartons of oatmilk or frozen dessert, or a perfectly foamed oat latte waiting for you when you arrive. Enjoy.

  • Where does the sugar come from?

    Our oatmilks (aside from the Chocolate) don’t contain any added sweeteners like cane sugar, which is why they’re not listed as an ingredient. The sugar in our oatmilk is produced during our enzymatic production process. Basically, we use natural enzymes to liquefy our oats, which enables us to create a really creamy product that retains a lot of the nutrition from the original oat (like protein, unsaturated fats, fibers, and carbs). As part of this process, the enzymes break the starches in our oats down into smaller components, including simple sugar like maltose. It’s comparable to how the human body uses enzymes to break starches down into sugars during digestion. You can read more about this process here.

    FDA guidance on sugar labeling now provides that any sugar created during a product’s production process should be categorized as 'added', which is why these sugars are listed as 'added sugar' on our nutrition labels.

  • Why did you use rapeseed oil?

    We’re always trying to find a balance between sustainability, taste and nutritional health. Oatly has used canola oil (also called rapeseed oil in Scandinavia) in our products for many years, because we believe it is the plant-based oil that best enables us to deliver on those values. In our US operations, we use only non-GMO canola oil that is expeller-pressed with zero hexane involved in the process. In comparison to other plant-based oils, non-GMO canola/rapeseed oil also contains relatively less saturated fat and has a neutral taste profile that lets the flavor of our oats shine.

  • I have notes, and some questions, who can I talk to?

    We created OatlyFans just to answer this and any other questions you might have.

  • I hate Oatly but I don’t know how to put it in words.
